Revealed: How Countrywide and Angelo Mozilo Crashed the Housing Market without Punishment

Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party have one important thing in common: anger about the disfunction and cronyism crippling our government and economy. This excellent two part video by 60 Minutes is the perfect example of why the U.S. is in need of comprehensive repair.

I have to imagine Angelo Mozilo and all the other thieves must be laughing at the incompetence of the American people who are too busy blaming Democrats or Republicans for all their problems rather than finally banding together to eradicate the financial terrorists in our country like Mozilo, Dick Fuld, and all the politicians who didn’t represent us against harmful interests.
